cuts that have now educators ringing the alarm. they warn of increased class sizes, the elimination of after-school and summer school programs, libraries could close, all this as the u.s. tries to close an achievement gap. joining me now to continue our education nation conversation, world-renowned educator dr. steve perry, also host of tv one's "save my son." steve, it's great to have you here. the secretary of education, arne duncan, has said that 9 million students would be affected by the cuts including nearly 2 million that are already living in this country in poverty. when we talk about special education needs for the kids of our country, we're essentially about to take away resources from the students that need it most. however, we're not talking enough about that. >> one of the reasons why there's even a conversation about cuts is not so much because there's less money coming in, it's because of so much money going out. where we spend the most amount of money in education is on personnel. me and the benefits that you pay us. many of us receive in some cases 30% to 50% of ou

through their budget process, is that money that i'm earmarking for education or transportation or whatever is happening in the state actually going to be there when the time comes for me to spend it or are we going to have to call the state legislatures back in session and make these cuts across the board? it's always a pretty traumatic when a legislature has to come back and revise a budget and sort of account for money that is not there when you expected it to be there. that's why getting these governors on board is really important. i actually sat down with a lot of them at the republican governors association meeting a few weeks ago out west. and a lot of them were saying we've planned for this. we've made preparations in advance. the real thing that they are concerned about is what happens to the military spending, what happens wh happens when their bases in the home state cuts back. a lot of them have planned in advance for the federal money not to be there. >> we heard governor herbert of utah saying that they understand the shared sacrifice, wanting to do more with less

africa. given that aids is now treatable, does that hurt the effort to educate and warn people that it's still a threat? >> no. i think it's got to be both. it's got to be prevention and treatment. and so awareness and money to the global fund is what red is about. red is an organization that tries to engage the private sector, big companies, major brands like starbucks, apple, converse, coca-cola in the fight against aids. and by doing that, we engage youth to really care about these issues. >> cdc came out with the report this week. in that report it shows that hiv cases were up 72% a year, 72% a year in 2010 among young lgbt men, lesbian, guy, transgender men. 57% of which are african-american. how do we stop these increases? >> it's really, really hard. but we can't, you know, sort of rest on our laurels because we don't see it as much in the united states and in europe. at red we're focused very much on women, because the majority of people now infected are women, six out of ten in subsaharan africa. so we're trying to do the goal of eliminating mother-child transition of hiv by 2

competitive globally like the central funding for education and innovation, and at the same time we also make sure we ask wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more and when it comes to our tax policy that if you work hard and play by the rules in america that everybody has a chance to succeed and that's why you've seen ceos from across the country sign on to that notion, with president obama, saying it's okay if we raise rates a little bit for folks who make more than $250,000 a year. the world is not going to come to an end. there are republican and conservative analysts and thought leaders like bill kristol who have said that. why the republicans in the house who really are still very entrenched with their tea party mentality have not yet understood that, and are still dug in, is really frustrating. >> the president has just said and i'm getting this reiterated to me from people who can actually hear what he's saying but saying to the leaders he's not opposed to tax reform. >> right. >> for you and the constituents that you represent, what is it for concession you're willing to bring to
